Aloha Kitchen Mesa

In terms of modern Hawaiian food, the plate lunch is as quintessential a dish as they come. Aloha Kitchen’s selection of Aloha Plates isn’t all that extensive, but it covers the Pan-Asian basics. Each plate comes with rice and either potato and macaroni salad or greens. Potato-mac makes a more conventional choice for plate lunch; it’s also infinitely better than the option of iceberg lettuce covered in too-sweet Thousand Island dressing.

Aloha Kitchen Mesa

Aloha Kitchen in Mesa serves laulau just once a week, on Saturday mornings. Stop by during the middle of the lunch rush and you’ll find tables of diners peeling open foil packets of gently steamed pork wrapped in tender greens. Traditionally, the bundle doesn’t come wrapped in tinfoil, as it is here, but this dish is the real deal in every other way: Peel back the silver shell and you find deep green taro leaves draped around salted pork. The thick hunks of fork-tender meat offer a hint of tea flavor imparted from the lu’au, as well as a pleasant, delicate saltiness.

If time can be considered a measure of a restaurant’s success, then at 28 years old, Aloha Kitchen is a hit. Located in a strip mall in southwest Mesa, the restaurant isn’t sleek or particularly modern. The sky blue paint on the walls looks fresh, at least, and an island-themed mural and assorted tropical paintings give the space a playful, relaxed atmosphere.

When it comes to Hawaiian food in metro Phoenix, there are a dozen or so places in town that can satisfy your basic cravings for a plate lunch. The number dwindles when it comes to traditional Hawaiian eats done well, and among the best of the limited bunch is Aloha Kitchen.

When it comes to kalua pork, the inclusion of cabbage can be a point of contention, and Aloha Kitchen prepares its pork with the greens scattered on top. At least that makes it easy enough to avoid them if you wish, though the mild flavor makes the cabbage inoffensive.

Chicken long rice, a popular luau dish, may remind first-time diners of chicken noodle soup. It’s not really a soup, per se, but rather a brothy dish that features pieces of chicken with thread or bean noodles. Aloha Kitchen’s version leans heavily on ginger for flavor, giving the noodles and chicken a pleasant piquancy.

In addition to the laulau plate Saturday special, other weekend offerings can include Hawaiian favorites such as Spam musubi. The popular snack and lunch for locals on the go can be found just about everywhere — including gas stations and convenience stores — but sadly, Aloha Kitchen’s version isn’t the best example. Too-thin slices of Spam over a block of white rice and wrapped in seaweed wanted something (oyster sauce, maybe?) to counteract the dryness. At least it’s a way to get your salty canned meat fix.

If there’s poke (pronounced “poe-kay”), grab an order. Made with raw ahi tuna marinated in soy saucee and sesame oil, this side dish is a staple for Hawaiians. Aloha Kitchen’s version nails it: Loaded with white and green onions and hearty chunks of fish, it’s a savory mouthful that’s fresh and flavorful.

Aloha Kitchen provides a first-rate bowl made with light, nearly clear shrimp-based broth and egg noodles that give just the right amount of bite. But the best way to enjoy Hawaiian noodles will be with an order of the restaurant’s fried saimin. Drier than Chinese chow mein, these stir-fried noodles combine kamaboko, char shiu, cabbage, and green onion. The light char on both the noodles and fish cakes gives the mixture instant appeal.

For those dreaming of Honolulu’s Rainbow Drive-In or Ono Hawaiian Foods, Aloha Kitchen will leave you feeling there’s something missing. For one, there’s no poi, the mashed taro root dish that was a staple for ancient islanders. A server said they used to offer the dish until importing it became too costly.

Even today in Hawaii you’d hardly imagine eating a traditional meal with the stuff, but the lack of poi isn’t enough to discredit this place as haven for Hawaiian food lovers. In offering a soul satisfying taste of Hawaiian tradition, Aloha Kitchen does the important things right.
